On Wednesday, October 16
th, seniors from BAHS, SDHS, and MVHS attended an event that provided them an interactive opportunity to learn about financial fitness. Students spent the morning at the Hutchinson Center participating in "A Money Management Experience Fair" presented by the Maine Credit Union League. This event is similar to the game of “LIFE”, where participating students are given a career and monthly income and then have to visit booths associated with various expenses that the average adult is faced with each month; costs such as transportation, housing, clothing, food, student loans, insurance and several other everyday expenses, are filled in on a monthly budget form by each student; at the end of the event, the goal is for students to have a monthly budget that does not exceed monthly income. 

Special thank you to the staff at the Hutchinson Center for all of their help during the preparation and throughout the event, to Tara Doolan and Belfast Variety for the wonderful lunch that the students were served at the end of the event, and especially to Stephanie and all of her volunteers from the Kennebec Valley Chapter of Credit Unions.
